Los Angeles: Actor Rupert Grint says he is a shy person off-screen and coping up with fame becomes difficult for him sometimes.

Grint rose to fame after playing the role of Ron Weasley in the `Harry Potter` franchise in all the 10 editions of the movie.

"I`m quite a shy person and wherever you go there`s someone taking a picture of you. I`ve been to a couple of music festivals in the past few years and that`s quite tough because there`s a huge amount of drunk people. Once one person comes over, it attracts a crowd," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Grint as saying.

He even tries to hide his face sometimes.

"Sometimes it`s a bit overpowering. You can`t just be yourself, you`re always on show. It puts me on edge. I do hide away from it and wear hoods and masks," Grint said.
